They are good, but as a one trick index most people will learn how to counter it.
Arka0415 wrote:Yeah, that's exactly the issue. I guess Broadsides get a little niche as they can take Velocity Trackers, or HYMP w/ ATS, but yeah they're shockingly expensive. Unless the points come down a lot in the new Codex no one will use them.
I struggle to find a place for broadsides, perhaps in a suit heavy force where other units are priority over them. but then they use up a huge chunk of points.

We need to use cost-effective solutions like Fusion Commanders and battlesuits with Cyclic on Blasters. I bring one Hammerhead at 1500-2000 points and two at 2000+ points; in my opinion they're not a spammable unit but rather they provide a versatile, long-range gun that's good at finishing off targets your XV8s and Commanders didn't quite kill.
yup. but as a guy with 8 devilfish hulls, a bunch of hammerhead turrets and not too many suits. I really don't see the point investing too heavily in models just yet.
